The '63 Studebaker Champ' is a casting replicating the classic early '60s Light truck made by Studebaker for the North American market. The Hot Wheels casting takes the basic truck and has it lowered and fitted with a tonneau cover. This tonneau cover is made from the same material as the interior piece and on versions with a plastic interior, a person can use their fingernail to lift it and reveal that this piece has the brackets molded to hold the rear wheels in place.


the '63 Studebaker Champ has come out in the following 1/64 scale versions:
